300th Post

I am not sure what I find most amazing about the fact that this is my 300th post. Maybe it is that I have written 300 posts, but it is probably that others have read them. I am grateful that this blog has helped me to focus on God. I am grateful that this blog has helped me to journal what God is laying on my heart and speaking to me about. I am thankful that God has used the words in this blog to touch others. I am grateful that God uses you. And me.

I continue to be awed by what God does. God is an awesome God. AWESOME. I am amazed at how God works through the ordinary to do the extraordinary. I am grateful that God chooses to work in and through ordinary people.

I am grateful that God chooses to make himself known in real ways through real people. I am grateful for his love. I am grateful that he works on my heart to make it more like his. I am grateful and in awe of his grace and mercy.

I am rambling a little as I think about my 300th post. I am just so grateful. My mind just races from one thing to the next that I am grateful for.

Today must be about gratitude. The truth is, I could probably let my mind race to other places. I could find stuff that I could worry about. Stew about. Obsess over. Let drag me down. There is good and bad always. It comes with the territory. But, and this is a big but, God is good all the time and all the time God is good!

Maybe today you are seeing more of the bad. Look for where the good is-- look for God. All the time God is good. Don't let the bad consume you. Don't let the bad rob you of the good that is there. Take some time to love and be loved. Take some time to let God awe you with the stuff God does. Tale some time and let your mind race to the good stuff and be thankful.

Love today.

In Christ's love and mine,
Doug

ps. I hope you enjoy the new look.
